Batman: Arkham Knight Receives an Interim PC Patch

The PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight has been a complete fiasco since launch, with countless players complaining about the game’s incredible performance issues with both Nvidia and AMD graphics cards. The game was so unplayable that Warner Bros eventually decided to pull it off Steam altogether while a dedicated team started to work on some serious patches. Even though the game’s major patch was expected to arrive in August, an interim patch for Arkham Knight has only just been released a few days ago in September. The patch is currently available on Steam for those who already purchased the new Batman game before it was removed from the digital distribution platform. Opinions regarding the patch’s usefulness seem to be divided, but most users seem to agree on one fact: the game still uses too much VRAM.

You can find the patch’s changelog below:

  • Reduced frame rate hitches.
  • Optimizations for system memory and VRAM usage.
  • Improved performance on all GPUs (requires the latest drivers).
  • More Comprehensive In-Game Settings.
  • Fixed low resolution texture bugs.
  • Fixed hitches when running on mechanical hard drives (HDD).

In addition to the above, we’re continuing to work on the following for future updates:

  • Adding support for SLI and Crossfire.
  • Adding support for the latest DLC & Season Pass content.
  • Adding support for additional updates such as Photo Mode.
  • Continued improvements and bug fixing for a Windows 7 specific memory issue that occurs on configurations with 8GB of system RAM and some NVIDIA GPUs during extended game play.
  • Continued improvements for Windows 10 specific issues on systems with some AMD GPUs.
